20th Century Fox is in the midst of setting things up so that they will have new comic book projects continually coming out over the next few years. In addition to X-Men: Days of Future Past, which will be coming out this May, the studio already has their Fantastic Four reboot scheduled to come out next year, and X-Men: Apocalypse set for 2016, but now they've officially added three more big titles to their own developing Marvel cinematic universe.
Maybe Neeson was pitched an idea that was too good to pass up on? Maybe he likes working with Grace, and director Olivier Megaton? Or maybe it was just that $20 million payday? Either way, plans for the third Taken are falling into place.
And now, The Neesons Is Back! Liam Neeson is reprising his role as Bryan Mills in Taken 3: Take Take Take Take Take (title subject to change), and heíll be joined by an unlikely ally: Ghost Dog!
The second movie only cost $20 million more than the first and grossed $150 million more, so Iím sure handing out raises is the plan for everyone involved. Next on the agenda would be re-signing Janssen and Maggie Grace, whose characterís surprising emergence was the only real improvement the sequel could boast.
Robert Mark Kamen, who produced both Taken and Taken 2, has confirmed that the big box office take for the sequel has convinced the filmmakers behind it to make a part three. "We didn't start talking about [Taken 3] until we saw the numbers," Kamen said. "But then we said, 'Oh, okay. I think we should do a third one.' And Fox wants us to do a third one."
